Salt and freshly ground black pepper
12 slices pancetta

2) Heat a frying pan on medium heat. Cook pancetta until crispy and fat has rendered. Remove from pan reserving the fat and add butter and garlic. Once the butter has melted add the scallops to the pan and gently sear until lightly browned. About 1 minute per side.
